D.A. Mulling Over Assault Charge Against Tory Lanez in Megan Thee Stallion Shooting
LA County District Attorney’s Office Examining Possible Assault Charges Against Tory Lanez for his alleged involvement in the Megan Thee stallion shot … TMZ confirmed.
The prosecutor is considering a felony assault charge with a firearm after Megan said she was shot in July as she exited the SUV in which she was riding with Tory. As you probably know by now … he was arrested, but only charged with possession of a firearm. Now, it is possible that he will face additional charges after prosecutors asked the LAPD to investigate the incident further.
TMZ broke history … law enforcement sources told us that LAPD detectives opened an investigation into Tory in July after would have shot Megan in the foot as she exited her chauffeured SUV on the heels of an argument that erupted inside the ride.
As we reported, sources linked to Tory say there were extenuating circumstances – and based on what we know … If he’s charged for it, we think Tory is going to say it was an accidental shooting.
However, charging it could have been a bit more difficult because of what Megan said a few hours earlier on Tuesday.
She posted pictures of herself horrible foot injury after the alleged shooting, but in her caption, she insisted that she brought her back to the SUV when she was shot in the heel … which would mean she couldn’t see who shot her above.
This is something she hadn’t said before, and it potentially complicates the prosecutor’s ability to charge an alleged trigger.
You will remember … video of the incident shown the cops stop the SUV in the Hollywood Hills – with Tory lying face down on the sidewalk and Megan cautiously tiptoeing … leaving bloody footprints with every painful step.
We broke the story … Megan’s foot injuries were so bad she had to get into the operating room to remove bullets or bullet fragments.
As we told you … MTS says the ordeal has left it “injured and traumatized. “
Lanez had previously been arrested and convicted of possession of a concealed weapon – handgun cops say they found it in the vehicle – and now he may be in the crosshairs for the shooting itself.
Our sincere thanks to
